Is there any bulb that I can use to replace the 9w incandescent bubl the 2.5 AGA nano comes with?

I want to keep a small planted tank and I know that the original bulb is just not appropriate.

Thanks! 8)

Screw in Compact flourescents are great for that type of setup, you can get them at Walmart in their fish section or there is an AGA model (10 watts) that you can find at some pet stores, i prefer the AGA as its somewhat brighter, i use two of them over a 5 gallon and plants are growing nicely
